Title: A Reference Grammar of Thai
Written By: Shoichi Iwasaki
Preeya Ingkaphirom
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of previously announced title.

A Reference Grammar of Thai provides a clear, detailed and comprehensive
guide to Thai grammar, designed for intermediate to advanced learners.
Written by two leading experts on Thai, it places a special emphasis on
functional accounts of its grammatical phenomena: the use of
demonstratives, personal reference terms, the modality system, the
aspectual system, pragmatic particles, verb serialisation, relative
clauses, question formation, passive and causative constructions, topic
marking and many more. Unlike any other book on Thai grammar, it draws on
data from everyday spoken discourses such as informal conversation, group
discussions, interviews and narratives, as well as non-technical written
texts such as folk tales, short stories and newspaper articles, to discuss
grammatical phenomena at both sentence and discourse level. An extensive
index is provided and examples are given in both Thai orthography and IPA
symbols, making this an invaluable resource for linguists as well as
students and teachers of Thai.
